I was listening to the normal and vibraphone versions of "Neil's Machine" and was like, "How the heck are they even the same song??? They sound totally different!" But then I actually tried to find the melody from the vibraphone within the normal one...


and it was in the STRINGS  :o
O_O
How did I not notice that for like a whole year... I thought the melody was in the harp because of the volume and the fuzziness of the string sound, but even then I didn't connect the notes the strings were playing to the vibraphone at all! I thought I was a musician, darn it!  D:

and and and
"Uncharted Realms" shares a tiny echo of the melody with it, albeit faster. Just at the beginning, though, with what sounds like the celesta?

Wait, harp does not qualify as strings? To my knowledge, it literally is a bunch of strings in a special D-shaped frame.

You're right! Harps don't sound quite the same as violins, violas, cellos, etc. though... I guess I don't include them also because most ensembles I've played in don't even have harp players. Like, when my conductor yells at the "strings", he's referring to the peeps with the bows  ;)

Why aren't pianos considered "strings"? They too have strings to make sound with... Then again, that would make harmonica a trumpet.

If you go by that logic they should also be percussion.

@Mobbstar Out of curiosity, why would pianos being string instruments make a harmonica a trumpet? "String instrument" refers to a category of instrument whose sound is produced by strings, while "trumpet" refers to a particular instrument.

I never said they didn't  :seraismile: one played a background part during a solo I played in "La Forza Del Destino" (Verdi) last year. pretty sure they were better than me.
Oh, and I think that lady playing the harp in the video you linked also played a cover of Everything's Alright!

Very neat; it's kinda rare to see harp playing IRL, so it's always quite mystical to me, heheh.

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! :) Hope y'all have a good one of the rooster/phoenix~

Well technically a harmonica and a trumpet are both 'wind' instruments. I think Mobbstar probably meant 'wind' instead of 'trumpet' XD

I guess piano is in its own class because you can have electric pianos and all, so they are not necessarily string-based.

Pianos are E-Guitars. Yey!

Wow those paper lanterns aren't safe. What about the safety regulations, guys? Company policies and all that!

I dunno, Eva having a rooster on her head doesn't seem too safe either. What if it pooped on her?   XD
Also, Neil has firecrackers. Maybe the company doesn't have many safety regulations after all.

One day, you must venture out to a live concert. Any big orchestras in a nearby city?
I wish I could watch the Boston Symphony Orchestra/Pops, myself, but the tickets are kinda expensive. I did see the Boston Youth Symphony perform in Symphony Hall for free...from the third floor balcony where they were just specks. At least I could still hear them though, the acoustics are crazy in that place!

Yeah, she really likes to make that skeptical/puzzled face! Maybe it should become a forum emoji, though Sal already has the raised eyebrow look covered:  :salbrow:
In the Christmas/holiday picture, I think Eva had more of a neutral face. The angle on her face was new though; a 3/4 view wasn't in To The Moon!
